    At Bigger Vision we serve adults who are experiencing homelessness and one of the struggles we face is connecting those we serve with the most up-to-date resources for their needs, especially now with COVID.

  • COVAID in Athens General Volunteer

    Athens Mutual Aid Network + COVAID

    9 volunteers - sign up to volunteer

    Athens Mutual Aid Network is pairing with COVAID.co to create a unique portal that will allow folx from a twenty-mile radius around Athens (we might be expanding this depending on resources) to request mutual aid. Persons requesting aid can request volunteers directly, based on location, language services, other forms of accessibility such as car mobility or legal services offered. Volunteers can deny requests so that an admin can reassign the request to someone else.
    As a volunteer, you will do the following:

    1. Help in the capacity asked of you, if you feel yourself able and willing.
    2. Complete volunteer requests within 48 hours or pass the request for aid to a volunteer who can complete the request.
    2. Coordinate with admins and the web director of AMAN if you cannot take a volunteer request or if you need to buddy up to complete a request.
    3. Maintain self care and rest.

    The following will be listed on COVAID as options for aid:
    pickup & delivery (food, supplies, etc.), grocery shopping, grocery delivery, prescription pickup and delivery, family sponsorship, cooking/food preparation, pet care/dog waking for immunocompromised and elderly folks, art/music/writing offerings, emotional support, conversation/companionship (with social distancing), housecleaning, legal representation/advocacy (housing/labor especially), Neighborhood Point Person (reaching out to neighbors via word of mouth).
